Fans, we are approaching a new age in Snookism. First, there was the party girl. Soon, we will see Snooki the mother. But the current incarnation of Snooki is something totally unexpected: Snooki the sage.
Here's how I see it. Snooki is enjoying a rare moment of sober enlightenment. As an expectant mother she is refraining from par-taying and she is seeing her Jersey Shore roommates with clear eyes, as an observer, for the first time ever. Participant no longer! Now she sits apart, witnesses, and interprets for us. Here's how she puts it.
"It's definitely cool to watch your friends be drunken idiots and you're like, 'Wow, I used to act like that.' So now I understand why people were annoyed with me. Because we're crazy." See? This sober phase has given Snooki an opportunity to see life from a different perspective. She's a little wiser now. She has more empathy and understanding for people outside the Jersey Shore party scene. She is the ultimate inside/outsider.
Okay, now some of you are going to say I'm making fun of Snooki. You may interpret this as facetious. But I assure you, I am completely, 100 90 80 percent not making fun of her. Snooki is now a sage -- but there was wisdom lurking beneath the surface of her consciousness all along. In fact, her next show should be called the Tao of Snooki.
Look how she's shaking off the beer-in-the-stroller incident. (And I was so doubtful.) She needed a cart, the stroller was there, she used it. That's all. And she doesn't care if you don't like it. She's just living her life best way she can, utilizing the tools life gives her. It's so simple! Now that I think of it, I'm going to love the Tao of Snooki.
What do you think of Snooki's new perspective on her fellow Jersey Show castmates?
